RUDY’S PERSONAL PROTEST

I had to go find it but this is where I first read about Rudy’s protest/joke. I guess it seemed funny at the time. That’s the writer’s smiley not mine.

Per Walden (a Jazz beat reporter)

As part of the Jazz’s COVID-19 response, shootaround availability was done in the ZBBC media room today rather than on the court. As Rudy Gobert got finished discussing the situation, he stood up, leaned over and made it a point to touch every mic and recorder in front of him. 😂

TEAM PLANNING NEXT STEPS - PLAYERS FOUND OUT VIA TWITTER

Per McTen

Lakers players are still waiting on word from the team for the next steps to follow during the NBA suspension, sources tell ESPN. Players learned of the league’s hiatus on Twitter, and then communicated on their group chat, sources said.

PLANS GOING FORWARD

Per McTen

On the Lakers team conference call this afternoon players were told they can coordinate individual 1-on-1 workout time at the team's facility whenever they feel comfortable, sources tell ESPN. The team will slot times based on interest so players do not come in contact.

https://twitter.com/mcten/status/1238255999921917957?s=21

Per Turner

Lakers players had conference call with GM Rob Pelinka, Coach Frank Vogel to update on NBA rules during shutdown for coronavirus: no group workouts, only 1-on-1 workout with assistant coach or strength coach. Players can put time in they want to workout. Another call Monday.

LAKERS COVID-19 FAQ - HIT THE LINK FOR FULL ARTICLE

By Mike Trudell

Source - https://www.nba.com/lakers/news/coronavirus-lakers-faqs-during-covid-19-hiatus


Q: Where are the players right now?
A: All of the players, for both the Lakers and the South Bay Lakers, are being asked to stay home as much as possible, so guys are in their homes in Los Angeles.

Q: Can the Lakers practice?
A: No, they can’t practice as a team, currently through March 16, with updates to follow. Neither can any NBA team. However, if the players do choose to work out individually at the UCLA Health Training Center, safety measures are being taken and NBA guidelines are being followed. Workouts are on a 1-on-1 basis with a member of the coaching, developmental or strength staff. All workouts are voluntary. Players are also able to receive treatment from the athletic training staff. To be clear, that’s 1-on-1 for a player and a staff member, not actual 1-on-1 between, say, Quinn Cook and Jared Dudley. Cook may be getting shots up with assistant coach Phil Handy, but will not be playing against another player.

Q: What safety measures are being taken?
A: Of course, the health and safety of the players, staff, families and all of the fans is the top priorities for the Lakers. The organization is strictly following the guidelines set forth by the government officials, the NBA, as well as team doctors, to ensure the players practice safe habits if they choose to workout. This includes washing hands frequently, sanitizing equipment and shooting on separate baskets.

Imagine a player immediately washing his hands after getting his shots up, the assistant coach washing his hands as well, and the ball being sanitized.

Q: Why are players still working out if we don’t know when games may resume?
A: Part of the reason for players to continue individual workouts is the hope of resuming games, and preparing for the playoffs at some point in the near future (we’ll get to what Commissioner Adam Silver said about that below). It takes a ton of work to be in “NBA game shape,” and players will want to do their best to stay ready despite not being able to actually practice or play in pickup games. Doing cardio, lifting weights, doing shooting and other individual drills can at least keep guys close to maintaining what they’ve built physically to this point of the season.

The Lakers have been an extremely driven team all season, with one goal in mind: a championship. Frank Vogel’s squad built a Western-Conference-leading 49-14 record, including at least one road win in every single Western opponent’s building, with the exception of Minnesota, where they have yet to play. LeBron and AD have set a focused, intense tone in the locker room that still has room for fun (and, well, winning is more fun than losing). I’m sure they want to try and keep their eyes on the prize as best they can, even through the hiatus, and being able to work out individually is one step.

Q: When could the games return?
A: Commissioner Silver said during an interview with TNT’s “Inside the NBA” crew that the NBA and its team owners, plus the Players Association, would be willing to extend the schedule into the summer months. That’s why he used the phrase “temporarily suspended” instead of “canceled” in his letter.

“Even if we’re out for a month, even if we’re out for six weeks, we could still re-start the season,” he said. “It might mean that the Finals take play in July, late July … my feeling was it was way premature to suggest that we had lost the season.”

GLEAGUE LIKELY DONE

I think their reg season was over and they were heading into the Playoffs but now it looks like... so is THT eligible to play in the Lakers post-season assuming there is one? How does that work?

Per Andrews/WOJ

NBA teams operating G League franchises expect the rest of the minor-league season will be cancelled because of the coronavirus outbreak, sources tell ESPN.

TAKING TEMPERATURES


Per McTen

On the Lakers’ team conference call today to discuss protocol during the coronavirus spread, players were instructed to only work out at either the practice facility or their home gym, for safety reasons, sources told ESPN. And players are expected to check in with the team daily


https://twitter.com/mcten/status/1239672458086477824?s=21

Per Lowe

Memo to teams this a.m. has instructions for taking temp of everyone entering team facilities (if teams wish):

* people waiting to have temp checked should remain 6+ feet apart

* any temp 100.4+ is considered fever

* Those with fever should leave facility pending further tests

SAUCES SAY - LAKERS TESTED

Per Turner

Sources: A majority of the Lakers players were tested at 9 a.m. for the coronavirus at the practice facility. The doctor on site did testing with like this Q-tip through the nose, has to touch throat and twist it. Took about 10 seconds. Lakers hope to get results by Friday.

Right at the top of yahoo in a big red banner it says american deaths have surpassed China. Does anyone really believe that? Cases in China slowed down literally the day after they kicked out american journalists. According to insiders in China their crematoriums have been running 24 hours a day and urns are being sent to families in the thousands every single day. So why is our media doing China's dirty work for them? When will they call them out for their BS propaganda rather than feed into it? This isn't what journalism was supposed to become.
